Hi, I'm getting into Salvador the morning of 12/31. Can anyone suggest the best way to get a taxi? I need to get to Jardim Apipema. Any idea of what the fare should be, more of less. Also, are there places to change money at the airport? I will be in Salvador all of January and looking to meet some people there! Thanks! Cindy
Hi,I cannot quote the exact fares but here's a site you can use to calculate the fares for Taxi in Salvador, taxiautofare.com/br/taxi-far... Proved helpful to me.. you can calculate the taxi fares and also check out the route map over here.. hope this helps :)
Thanks very much for you answers. I think I will take the executive bus if it is available on Dec.31 in the morning when I get in. I read about it an it is right by the acaraje stand, is that right? I can easily take a taxi to my friends house from the Onthon Palace--she said I could almost walk there exccept for my luggage.
Also, it sounds like there are casas de cambio in Pelourinho and Barra. Would i get a better rate if I exchange US dollars there or if I take money out of an ATM.
Only two weeks and I am leaving--I am so excited!!
